Botanical Monoprinting & Bookbinding with Katharina Nyilas

Katharina will be running a few fun wildlife-themed workshops next week following the opening of her Into the Forest exhibition on the 6th February. These are the perfect opportunity to get creative and learn some new techniques, for all ages and all levels of experience! 

Botanical Monoprinting - 

Friday 7th February Lunchtime Session 1-2pm £10   &   Saturday 8th February 12-3pm £25

Get inspired our ancient forests and diverse ecosystem to design some beautiful monoprints. 

In this workshop Katharina will be teaching four monoprinting techniques. Impressions of plants, leaves and natural fibres will be made and rolled out ink will be used with mark making to produce a single impression on paper through mark marking. You will have the opportunity to experiment with techniques and combine them after initial demonstration and practice of each technique.

The workshop will take you through the print making process allowing them to experiment with shapes and colour to create interesting patterns, colours and textures on paper. You'll have the opportunity to create unique botanical monoprints to take home as well as a range of small gifts including a set of greetings cards, gift tags and wrapping paper.

All materials are provided, but you are welcome to bring your own plant material or imagery to use as inspiration for drawing or mark making, or bring flat plant samples to use in the print making process.

Bookbinding - Tuesday 11th February 10am-12.30pm £18

Katharina will also be running a bookbinding workshop open to all ages and abilities. This is a chance to create your own original notebook using a range of interesting textures and recyclable materials. Feel free to bring along your own materials and design your own personal notebook.
